Some of the best values are direct-to-consumer manufacturers. like the Snell and the Kirkland balls.  I'll probably be buying a bunch of Snell MTBs this spring, at something like $27 a dozen.

Seconded on the direct-to-consumer...if I were going to play with new golf balls, I'd go with the Snell MTB's (or, perhaps, balls from Vice Golf).

For now, I get all of my golf balls from LostGolfBalls.com.  I get the "like-new" condition versions of the balls that I like to play (Hex Chrome for now, formerly Bridgestone E6) for about $1 each.  For me, at least, they're indistinguishable from new balls, and I don't feel badly about losing them or using a dozen for pitching practice.

I agree. Love snell mtb. Click the snell add that cycles through on top of the page to get to their site and order to help support tst.

Craigslist is a good source for me. I just bought 5 dozen ProV1 for $160. People get them or win them and sell them instead. Sometimes they have logos, but that doesn't bother me.

Yes, an echo. I just received my first dozen Snell Get Sums. Dean signs each invoice they pack with the shipments, which was a nice touch. I'm looking forward to trying these balls as my game, apparently, is a two-piece-ball affair. A few friends of mine work at the local Costcos so I've been joking with them to bring me a box or two. Typically, I've just meandered through the local golf super shop and made an educated guess selecting a box of these or those. I did stumble upon the Taylormade line doing that and have played those a bit this last year.

I happen to be a fan of the Gamer Soft and Maxfli Softfli and I live near a Dicks.  If I played a tour ball I would follow some of the advice above.  I also make a point to buy at least a couple of dozen balls in sleeves from my pro shop - it gives me a chance to test some different balls and also helps support the pro.

lostgolfballs.com. No brainer for me.  Get the second to highest quality which look new and perform great.  Some may have logos on them but whatever.  I have bought different brands on there with zero complaints.  Club just put new greens in so I need to test different balls to see which performs best and then I am ordering a bucket of them.

4A rating is probably the best value, but I think the couple extra bucks for 5A condition is worth it knowing that the whole set is essentially a new box of balls.  I don't mind the logos either but one of the Bridgestones I just got has the guy's kids' names on it....yeah, I'm not going to touch any other ball until that one is lost.

    • Did Rahm have the option to go straight at the hole on 18? It was either option go straight at hole get birdie but big number rolling it into the water or option escape bunker away from hole, longer putt for birdie, but take water out of play.
    • Trying to feel more head centered. Also faster hands, almost feels like dropping to ground at A4. Then massive, massive giraffe whoopie and trying for flow feeling from the step drill. Huh, the second swing is almost like that keep right arm straight as possible challenge?  
    • Round Summary... Driver - Tried to keep it short. I didn't feel my arms extend behind me when I really over swing. I probably was still a bit long. Overall, not bad. Direction control was a bit off. Not use to timing it, it got better later in the round. One a few holes, I just hit driver because I wanted to when I shouldn't have. They were stupid lines with high risk and not much reward. I was out of it after taking an 8 on a par 5 (no penalty). Early on the shots were just big pushes right. Then they finally started to straighten out a bit.  Irons - For the full swing shots, pretty decent. Shorter swing feel. Then hands down sooner. Arms felt like they were never stuck behind me. Contact was good.  Distance Wedges - This is a struggle. I need to practice how far back to take the club. I think I take it back similar on each distance, but just vary turn rates and clubhead speed. This gets me in big trouble when anything gets to be around under 75% distance. I need to work on not keeping the left knee flexed so long or saggy into impact.  Pitches - Need more commitment to using some speed. To many were just lazy. This caused contact issue, mostly slightly fat. Its slightly better.  Putting - Not making anything, speed control was good. Tap ins on every hole. Contact is inconsistent, I still heel to many putts.  Ended up shooting a 44, with an 8. That 8 was because I chunked a distance wedge into the bunker. I had like no turn at all, and just bottomed the club out before the ball. The bunker had little to no sand. The club just bounced up into the ball. I swung to hard for the amount of sand. The ball just flew over the green about 5 yards. I chunked a pitch shot that was on a severe upslope. I finally got the ball onto the green and two putted.  I think I am going to start working in more of the left leg stuff. Just need to clean up impact more. 
    • I got an Xbox! The X, not the less powerful one, the S. Waited for the button to become enabled about 15 minutes after being notified of the retailer drop by a Twitter account. Now I'm ready for MSFS, which I think is on Gamepass? It's quite a mess behind the tv with all the cables, now with a PS5, Switch, ATV, 4K player, receiver and HDMI hub. It's going to be a real big mess with the Xbox now. Started playing Disco Elyisum on the PS. Trippy experience so far.
    • Ugh, just noticed my phone typed Rham. I regret the error.
